Default Re: Propane conversion

I had an idea this morning, while reading the Boost Bottle thread on motoredbikes.

I'm going to order one of those intake tubes for the china motor that already comes with a inlet and barb-type brass connector, and run the propane w/valve or regulator, right into the inlet. I figure I can try that, and if it doesn't work as planned, I can sell the intake part or save it for a spare.

It seems a lot harder to "flood" an engine with the propane, when doing mower conversion, because the gas can just leak out the muffler or carb if its too much, and when its running, it will just waste any extra propane gas by blowing it out the exhaust.
